Summary "..... Though the work of Caribbean women writers is apparently less political than the male dominated literature of national liberation, Scott argues that these women nonetheless express the sociopolitical realities of the postindependent Caribbean, providing insight into the dynamics of imperialism that survive the demise of formal colonialism. In addition, she identifies the specific aesthetic qualities that reach beyond the confines of geography and history in the work of such writers as Edwidge Danticat, Oonya Kempadoo, Jamaica Kincaid, Pauline Melville, and Janice Shinebourne...."
